Aaron Rodgers he is in his dark retreat and his future looks unclear. The still quarterback for the Green Bay Packers expressed his annoyance at the latest reports that he was placed with the New York Jets during his participation on Pat McAfee Show.
For this reason, Tiki Barber, a former Giants player, declared on his WFAN program that it will be difficult for Rodgers to be in New York because he won’t be able to deal with the intense media attention.
“If he is so sensitive that he gets upset by what people – reporters, influencers, whoever – want to talk about him, it will be difficult to be in New YorkBarber said. “I don’t know if it’s right for him. I don’t know if I want it in New York if that will be the reaction for things that don’t matter.”
Barber spent 10 years with the Giants, between 1997 and 2006, so is an expert on the press and media in the ‘Big Apple’. During his career in New York, the Virginia graduate had 10,449 yards and 55 touchdowns after rushing 2,217 times.
“If Aaron Rodgers doesn’t want people to talk about himabout his offseason, about his personal life and all the things that happen with him, you should stop talking”said the three-time Super Bowl guest.
